Happy Thanksgiving

Give thanks in all things, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus! Margaret Jensen's mom said that a happy heart is a thankful heart. No wonder they link the words 'happy' and 'thanksgiving' together!! Like turkey and stuffing....or stuffed!!!

If you find yourself a bit cranky over the length of your to-do list, start at the top of the list and work your way down - with thanks. For instance, I have to grocery shop. So, I'll thank the Lord for money to do that and a store to do it in. Some countries have no clue about this luxury! Next, bake.... well, hmmmm..... we can be thankful for the warmth and sweet aroma. Etcetera. This little game might make some real changes of heart...and attitude. That'd be nice, wouldn't it?

Since I'll be so busy thanking and preparing for the Big Day, this might be the only howdy this week. We'll see. May you find your hearts filled with lots of thanks and happinesses!
